Thank you Vancouver!
Thank you! Merci!
What a night! The third edition of Dîner en Blanc Vancouver was the best experience to date and something we are very proud of. Held at the waterside David Lam Park on Thursday, August 21, 2014, over 3500 dined in this beautiful setting with an iconic Vancouver sunset. As usual, the event managed to create a ripple of inspiration that cascaded over the City of Vancouver via traditional and social media!
All told, it is you and the tremendous amount of effort put forth by each participant that made this experience so tremendous. From the sea of wild white outfits, to your homemade meals and desserts, special plating, creative tablescapes and incredible attitudes, you elevated the experience to new heights.
Our words fall short in describing just how thankful we are.
We hope your experience was fulfilling and magical, catapulting your enthusiasm forward to join our event next year. As we grow, it is your continued contribution that will keep the magic of Dîner en Blanc so special and unique.
As Hosts, we would also like to thank a number of others who co-created with us this year:
First and foremost, a true thank you Alliance Française de Vancouver, our cultural and official language partner of Dîner en Blanc Vancouver.
To David Hawksworth and Chad Clark, who managed to make the task of catering nine hundred meals look so effortless. We had an incredible amount of fun producing the food experience with you and we look forward to the potential to partner again in years to come.
Thanks to the Vancouver Opera and Arts Umbrella for providing unique performances that transformed the evening. If you or your friends would like to see the coming opera, Carmen, the Vancouver Opera is delighted to offer an exclusive offer to all guests of the Dîner en Blanc. Visit http://www.vancouveropera.ca/dinerthankyou to find out more.
A special appreciation to Wendy Williams-Watt for creating the largest Love Ball installation we have ever seen. The photography of attendees enjoying themselves around the art inspired many.
Thank you to Kenn Hamlin and the TELUS team, Meghan Ross-Daniel at Evian and Heather Owen at RBC. Without all of your creativity, dedication and commitment as sponsors of Dîner en Blanc Vancouver, we could never undertake such a massive feat of culture.
And finally to our Group and Table Leader and large volunteer team: a collection of the most amazing people. Thank you so very much. Your endless hours of volunteerism, gathering friends, communicating with your groups and preparing everyone to look so good - you make the event to come to life. More adventures to come in the years ahead.
